Most issues in America can be explained by the fact that white people dont want to share with minorities, whom they accuse of being leeches.

It only benefits those who are jobless, and rates were jacked up for the rest. Imagine paying $1200 a month for insurance, not including dental, and having a $12,000 deductible. Meanwhile it's basically free for the unemployed.

>>719933221
Its becuase there were alot of people abusing it and it wasnt minorities it was alot of white people doing it reason there is so many overwieght people in america and the people that actually needed it couldnt becuase of the amount of abusers using it that were completely capable of making a living but didnt want to have to do anything other then just stay home all the time and claim benifits

Because its not fair to take money from someone to give it to another for arbitrary reasons. In cases of extreme poverty it may be ok, but we beleive in individuality and self-sustinence. Take care of yourself and you wont have to rely on others to take care of you. Also, speaking as a libertarian, taxation is theft.

Serious question, why doesn't (or wouldn't) universal healthcare work for Americans?

I'm German and pay a bit less than 100 bucks per month for my health insurance (having one is mandatory) and the service I receive for it is outstanding.
Like, I had a torn meniscus once and the guy who fixed it literally invented the technique for it and was flown out to treat some national sports team the day before.
My mother (same insurance) suffers from cancer and got experimental drugs that cost about 10k a shot and may very well have saved her life.
Hell, I don't even have to pay for my therapy sessions or my asthma medicine, which would cost me more than I could reasonably afford, and even homeopathic stuff would be covered if I gave a damn about it.

Now I'm genuinely wondering, since this seems to improve the quality of life of many people by a lot and obviously works around here, seeing how nobody wants to leave the country for that and insurance companies are alive and well too, why would the same not work for the USA?
>>
>>719932929
because it costs the people that work more money and the way life is for the "working man" under the niggers administration those who work barely made it and those who didn't work got to sit back on their asses and reap the benefits. i hope that changed.
>>
>>719932929
Because it results in higher tax rates. If somebody needs a live saving procedure go for it, I'll pitch in as far as tax is concerned.

If they just kind of felt like going to the hospital because they had a headache fuck em, they can pay for that shit.
>>
>>719933080
And from what I have learned from living in America my whole life... everyone will defend tax raises for the rich, because everyone believes it will affect them somehow. THE RICH EARNED THOSE TAX CUTS BUT FUCK THE POOR BECAUSE THEIR 150 DOLLAR WELFARE CHECK CAME OUT OF MY POCKET!

300,000,000,000 a year to oil companies as tax-cut and/or subsidies is fine though.
>>
because those of us who watch our weight, don't do retarded things like extreme sports, don't go to the ER every time we have a fever, and tend to our own wounds are being forced to pay into private insurance so that executives with million-dollar salaries can still turn a profit after being forced to pay the hospital bills of the obese and stupid.

I love healthcare that I have worked for. I don't like working so lazy spics and niggers can continue to breed like rabbits and clog up our hospitals.
>>

>>719932929
Well, that's a long answer. Suffice it to say we have this myth of being a meritocracy, where people are led to believe that if they work hard they will be rewarded in the same measure of how hard they worked. This is of course not true, hard work CAN pay off but it sure doesn't always. This myth also feeds into the idea that if someone has a lot of wealth and power, it means they worked hard enough to EARN that wealth and power which leads to this weird cultural bugaboo that if you're rich, it means you earned everything you have, you're a hard worker and therefore a good person. This is also not always true. Now, the position that those less fortunate are merely mooching off the rest of the tax payers who play by the rules is also very complex but it can in part be attributed to those tax payers (who also get gvmt assistance in others ways such as tax credits for children and owning a home,but lets not muddy the waters) believing that those who take gvmt assistance are lazy and therefore bad people who do not deserve said assistance. It's a bit of a logic loop and it's part of the reason we are where we are.

From what I have heard, it is because of higher taxes. Personally, I wouldn't really give a shit because most people pay for insurance anyhow so what the fuck is the difference, really?
>>
>>719937829
That's absurd.
Do you know how much the CEO of one of those insurance companies makes? How many people he has on his personal staff? What they make? The cost of their vehicles? Their offices? Their call centers? The tens of thousands of employees? The ad campaign? All that PLUS the profit margin comes from one thing and one thing only:
money taken in by premiums and NOT paid to hospitals for health care.

Healthcare is a need not a right.
A human has to provide that health care for you, it's their right to charge as much or as little as they want for it.
It is not societies duty to pay that man what he charges for his service. It's your problem.

Why shouldn't we just have universal food?
Food establishments should just be required to feed anyone who walks in and the government should reimburse them later.

Why shouldn't water be free?
Water is essential for life, and the fact that the city charges you for how much you use is rediculous.

Why shouldn't energy be free?
In todays world you need electricity to function, and to heat your home.
Shouldn't the government pick up the tab for warming houses, you wouldn't want ot leave someone to freeze to death would you?

Why shouldn't Internet be free?
Restricting access to information by keeping the internet out of the hands of the poor is inhumane!
Internet should be provided by the government for free!


A government big enough to give you anything, is big enough to take anything away.
Communism was the failure of the 20th century.
And Western intellectuals loved the idea of it the entire time.

Intellectuals love ideas, but their ideas don't actually work.

Legally mandated? What? You have the choice to opt in for private (I assume you mean employer supplied) insurance. If you don't then you can purchase it yourself or be fined.

If you AREN'T forced to purchase then the entire idea of insurance is moot, as those who don't require insurance won't buy in (go google the insurance death spiral).

Also we lose money hand over fist on the exchange plans, so they certainly don't pay my salary.

Basically everything you've said is wrong.
>>
>>719932929
Because it isn't free, we're required to purchase insurance under financial penalty if we don't. It is stupid. Mediocre bait, but that's actually the reason.

You are actually paying for it. You pay 42% in taxes if you are in the middle class. 42!!! That is almost HALF your income already gone. THEN you have 5.5% on TOP of this for some other BS solidarity tax. Holy fuck dude.

I made almost $150K last year, you know what I paid in taxes? Less than 23%. Seriously. That is almost a $30,000 difference in what I would take home here vs. Deutschland.
And you guys don't spend SHIT on national military vs the US.

So yeah, you are paying for it.

It's not 42% of your income. Your tax bracket might be 42%, but you only pay that rate on the income that's above the threshold.
>>
>>719939870
42% is literally the highest percentage you can pay and seriously far from middle class, especially if you consider the cost of living around here.
Besides, what's your point? Of course we're paying for it, how would anything ever be free?

And while we're at it, my insurance company happens to be an entirely private company that is in no way directly supported by the government, so how are my taxes related to that?

My understanding is that the countries with successful healthcare for everyone only manage it because they limit how much drugs can cost, and how much doctors can charge.

In the US, drugs are WAY expensive, and doctors fees are WAY high.

Without limiting those things, I don't think there is a workable solution.

>>719940256
No, you don't. We don't have to here either. In a very little mentioned thing - if you tell the hospital that you will NOT be using insurance, you will pay MUCH less. I'm talking about 80% less.

In some countries (with medical treatment of about equal quality) that will get you more than 2 years worth of insurance.
You could literally have three babies and get help for every other medical problem you have during that time.
>>
>>719940538
No, 45% is the highest. And the 42% threshold starts at 50K, well in the lower range of middle class.

My point is - here in 'Merica we believe in personal responsibility and working for yourself more than a collective mindset. We don't like that the government wants to "take care of us."

We're just different, and we like it. That is why most of us here don't want universal health care.

If you don't want insurance, don't get it. We don't want to be forced to buy something just because we breathe.
>>
>>719941107
You don't pay the insurance for times, when you have the money. You pay the insurance for times, you no longer have money. It may be, that this sense of security, ie. better to have it and don't need it, rather than need it and don't have it, is not part of the american mentality.

And I really hope, you didn't want to tell me that you have to pay 400% out of your own pocket, if you use insurance
>>
>>719932929
No, republicans just hate obama cus he's a Democrat and because he's a brown man so much they are willing to let americans die by removing healthcare with no solution or replacement simply because the healthcare is associated with obama and his legacy.

Racists may be shooting themselves in the face, but thats expected, becuase racists don't work on logic.

The only question is, with republicans in power of senate and house and pres who will they blame now?

I'm sorry, but that's just delusional. That's upper middleclass in Germany at the very least, if not more.
While I get your point of view and the philosophy behind it, it seems obvious that in practice, it doesn't work as well as other systems. The USA aren't exactly a healthy country and in pretty much every healthy country, bankruptcy due to medical issues is hardly a problem at all.

Yes, I did. Because I used insurance which had a $5K deductable. 5K for the wife, 5K for the baby.

It sucked, hated it. So that is why I did not use it the next time. The hospitals know insurance has all the money so they charge outrageous prices. If you pay yourself its much more reasonable.

I agree about not having it and needing it. But I just hate being told that I HAVE to have it.

European here

My country has provincial based universal healthcare that bakes in my income tax in to the insurance system. Whenever I go to a healthcare clinic or a hospital, be it private or state owned, my provincial insurance will pay out a standard fee for the visit based on what I got fixed for plus I will personally pay a visit fee (10-30€).

This system has some flaws, but for the most part it achieves two important things. Its economically and bureaucratically efficient, and everyone gets proper healthcare in time which minimizes the chance of more costs down the line. The visitor fees also keep system abusers away.

Now, freedom and socialism aside, why doesn't the US simply just copy this kind of system?
I know we manage to afford it despite having the same gdp per capita as the poorest states in the US.

Because you must pay 100% sales tax to get it, which doesn't sit well with americans. For one thing we don't make enough money to afford that much tax, and for another thing we don't like the idea of paying for someone else's shit. I haven't been to a doctor in 15 years, while some people go every week. I'd be paying half my income and get nothing for it. That's the part americans don't approve of.

Also, america is nigger land, and niggers abuse the shit out of any free government service. You'd never be able to get your cancer fixed because the system would be clogged up with niggers pretending they're sick to get free pills to sell on the street.

So yeah. Universal healthcare is good and pretty much a necessity in the 1st world, but it can't work here in the USA.

They're not perfect, but those taxes help pay for essential services a society needs in order to not just function but be free happy and successful.
>>
>>719947068
He's looking at a model of other countries, where that's a common system to pay for the healthcare. Ultimately, the source of income is irrelevant, the fact that it's beyond many people's means to pay, and the fact that someone who eats themselves to 500 pounds tends to have several times the medical costs, I wouldn't want universal healthcare either. Now, if we institute a fat tax, along with a few other taxes related to unhealthy habits to subsidize, sure, do it.

That's the difference between a third world country to first world. Don't you understand the US is a first world which means it has the power and ability to make the population grow. Most people don't think about the stages of population growth and health care. The peopl who where born in the 80 are coming to the point of 40+ meaning son they will be out of the work force and need he 2000 kids to become their replacements . If a nation can't continue this healthy balance they will turn like Mexico, Honduras , Brazil etc. These nations are awful in health care and population growth. Death rate is extremely high and this is why they are stuck in third world status because they can't produce a population that has he ability or health to work hard iobs. This is a small portion of a countries growth. The United States was in terrible state in health care.

Because we already had a system in place with a fragile ecosystem of multiple people buying into a health care system to then support those who need and when they need it for the saftey net.

Now a lot of the nets are frayed and falling apart because everyone left for "lol free heatlh care I dun care if it is ass." and it ruined the ecosystem that it was made for. Which sucks for people like me who actually enjoyed getting their needed medications for low costs, because obamacare doesn't give me any good coverage on the things I need and I have to deal with massive lines to the government mandated health care facilities instead of having my private doctor that had low waits and enjoyable experiences.

So it fucks over the middle class to give health care to the illegals and retards who can't take care of themselves or get an actual job outside of low level retail at the age of 30+.

It's not enough for him to have it available, he needs to stuff it down the throats that don't want to buy into his shitty system or benefit from other people's fucking money.

This. It rewards lazy people more than anything. I wouldn't mind if we had free healthcare, but with any system, there's going to be people that abuse it. Hell, there's people that abuse it in places where it's successful, but when you look at these countries with super socialized governments, you'll notice that first of all, their culture is tuned much more toward contributing instead of taking, because it's the decent thing to do. And second, you'll notice that these countries often have the total populations of like, some of our fucking cities.

More people = less accountability = less incentive to not just game the system and mooch = more fucktards taking out than there are buying in

Idiots like Bernie can lay out their plans for how they'll work on paper, but at the end of the day, you need to plan for like ten times the amount of people using the system than you intend for them to, and half of them not contributing shit, because this is America, land of the lazy fucking niggers.

And until they learn that, no system will work.

They abolished kings because power was in the hands of the few, and through capitalism power has concentrated once again. you may find like china, freedom and capitalism are not mutually exclusive. No capitalism without the rule of law and morality wishes to maximize profit over all else.

I hope not, but I'm sure that won't stop the IRS or some other relative service from coming to collect their debt.

But don't worry! That whole incident of being forced to take obamacare was deemed constitutional due to many bribes and the corruption of the system in place. Just like the same reason Hillary got no prison time for treason and the FBI came out and boldy stated that she will not be punished even though enough evidence is there to convict her.

You mean some European nations, where an individual nation is comparable in both size and population to an individual State in the US? And even then not every European nation has managed to do accomplish it successfully.

>Oh b-but Canada

Yeah the entirety of America's hat has a population comparable to California. Nice try, nigger. And even then many of their citizens come to the US because we just have better doctors for shit more complex than the sniffles.

Your statement literally outlined my entire point. Every country with Socialized healthcare is either filthy rich for their size (See: United Arab Emirates) Have very small populations, especially when compared to the US (See: Literally all of them,) or has a culture that supports unity over individualism, making socialized systems extremely viable because the lazy people gaming the system are in the minority due to their culture and upbringing (See: Asian countries)

America is none of these things, and if we instituted socialized healthcare, the one way it could see it working (especially when we look at countries that have done it successfully) is if instead of instituting it on a federal level, we encouraged states to do it on a state level, and even then it's not likely for every state to be able to accomplish that very successfully, for a variety of reasons (reference the reasons why I don't think that it would work on a national level for why.)

Add to that, that we have a literal majority of black people in the country living on welfare, lazy assholes who claim anything for disability or try to sue for anything, morons, and some of the best opportunities for people to get rich, and it really makes you wonder why there's such inequality.

>the one way it could see it working (especially when we look at countries that have done it successfully) is if instead of instituting it on a federal level, we encouraged states to do it on a state level, and even then it's not likely for every state to be able to accomplish that very successfully

You just answered your own problem, budday.

>free for unemployed
>not free for workers

so make it free for everyone. Ausfag here, free healthcare kicks ass - I get sick, I go see a doctor and/or visit an ER, doesnt cost me a cent out of pocket - all paid for with taxes.

I can therefore get on with my life, the govt. provides me with living security and free healthcare - the rest is up to me.

Suck on my dick, americans. You have it so shit. Wake up.

You don't seem to grasp that if 100000 people paying a small tax covers the healthcare of 100000 people that same percentage tax covers 100000000 people.
It's seems unsustainable to America only because you are already so unhealthy.

You're saying if a fruit seller can afford to buy apples at $1 and sell them at a 50% markup, there's no way he could make any money if he had 1000 apples to sell..
He will, he'll make the same amount per apple.

isn't the opposite happening now though.. you do pay for health care and insurance companies make it impossible for people to reach those costs.

No, you only did it when it suited your argument.

You're implying that european healthcares can't be compared to what can be done in the US because the US as a whole are bigger and more populated than euro countries, which is a poor attempt at dodging the acknowledgment that your socioeconomic system is just fucked up to its very roots.

California and Texas are the wealthiest states, merged together you get the population and GDP of France, but with double the poverty rate.

318.9 million (2014) - USA
64.1 million (2013) - UK

Gee, these are some fair comparisons. It's a lot eaiser and less effort to pay for shit when lower populations, but because it works for one country doesn't mean it works for our infastructure which have to over WAY more people than they do along with pay for them, while still giving people whose a burden free money from whatever system they are using. Social security, welfare, unemployment whatever else.

I like when idiots like you complain about this shit but don't realize land size and population matter. But the fact you have to correlate each COUNTRY to a state is really sad and shows your ignorance of how different everything is.

But keep comparing apples to oranges and keep thinking that you are actually making a valid argument.

...and because the culture is different... and because like 40% of the population doesn't pay taxes... and because being one person in a 300 million person system isn't very compelling to promote accountability...

We can keep going in circles if you want, but all you keep doing is latching onto one of my several points and attacking that one point without acknowledging the others.

If it were just one factor at play, then sure it'd probably be easy enough to get around it. But it's several factors working together.

This is, again, why I suggested that it might be possible for some, richer states to accomplish universal healthcare on their own, comparable to the richer countries of Europe (several countries in Europe do not have socialized healthcare probably for reasons similar to why I've outlined that it can't work in the US on a federal level.)

>>
>>719955713
Uh, no. Try again. It would cost a lot more than a 2% tax. Giving healthcare to everyone caused premiums to shoot up so that for the same coverage you're paying anywhere from 8x-30x as much as before ACA. And that's not even covering all the costs, many of which you still have to pay for even on 2k+/person plans.

Literally every single European country managed to set up a universal healthcare relying to numbers to work, but the US can't despite having so much more people.
What you're saying here is that the US are just terrible at organizing their shit, and can't do it on either a federal or a state-level.

If anything, that poor "b- but European countries are smaller!" argument is actually making your argument more ridiculous.

>>719956392

Not the person you replied to but

Trying to work a system with 1/3 billion people is a lot harder than trying to work a system with a 5th of that. This is why federal healthcare is stupid because there's so many logistical hoops to jump through that could be avoided by just doing it on a state level and letting people in their states vote for it or not instead of trying to stuff it down everyone's throat Ala obama care

No, it's 2% Medicare tax.

That's because your healthcare costs per capita in US of fucking A are so high, compared to other nations, like Australia.

We pay 2% p/a in tax, and the gov. also kicks in a little extra from income tax and etc.. And we have a public health care system.

Are you saying that a 2% tax would be enough to have free healthcare for all Americans?
>>
>>719956145
>because like 40% of the population doesn't pay taxes
Then change that.
For literally 50 years, the highest revenues in the US had a +70% taxation rate, with peaks to 80 and even 90%, and those were the years the American middle class was the wealthiest and had the world highest quality of life.
Then Reagan took office, and 35 years later, 80% of the American population either stagnated or got poorer despite your GDP doubling.

But you won't change that because taxation is akin to communism to you.
So the US will keep falling and whining about it.

Obamacare didn't cause the skyrocket in premiums, it was just a convenient excuse for the insurance companies to do so.
>>
>>719956896

>Then change that

I hope that we do. But making a system paid for by about half of the population that EVERYONE takes out of is asking for trouble. Surely you can see that?

There are several steps we need to take before we even consider free ANYTHING at a federal level being a viable option. And trying to accomplish that right now without having a solid foundation for it is just asking for failure.

I do agree, which is why the initiative should come from the top but the US states should be the one managing it.
It's just logical, and would be similar to how it works in Europe.

But they won't, so that's irrelevant.
>>
>>719957192
The power cable just means they didn't have to worry about power for the demonstration. They aren't a battery company, they're a robotics company. As far as combat gear weight, why wouldn't it be built into the robot? Combat gear is for an ill suited body made of squishy flesh that can't just be replaced with a thick piece of metal.

Embezzlement, nepotism and "financial oversight" is a big thing in public sector America. It probably exists in welfare states like Sweden, Norway, France, etc But it's probably not as prevalent. Maybe because they're smaller countries where efficiency is key and you just can't throw money at a problem.

still we have the issue of health insurance companies can still lobby and buy lax regulations through congress. Which really is one step removed from above, same shit different sewer

>>719934850
That's stupid here in Canada they always ask for a healthcard and If you don't have one you have to pay
>>
>>719956893
Probably not initially, But that wouldn't be hard to figure out.
But that because there's so much unnessecary health problems due to the current system.
After people had access to no out of pocket healthcare, it would lead to less healthcare needed, and more people back in the workforce contributing to taxes.

If 2% from each person in Aus covers all Australians, then 2% from all Americans should cover all Americans.
That's how percentages work.

The only difference in that consideration is if one group currently need more healthcare per person, which shouldn't be the case, But sadly it is
>>
>>719956925
What a retard
>>
>>719956893

Yes. That's the reason it's crazy we don't have it. We've been trained to believe that healthcare SHOULD cost more.

>>719957735

No, because healthcare costs per capita in 'Murica are much, much higher than in any other country on the planet.

>>
>>719957161
so the half doesnt work???/ the do meth all day???
>>
>>719957885

Shoudl also add, that's because you have let your insurance companies and doctors dictate prices - doctors in america earn way more than they need to - especially with other countries doctors doing the same job for less (still a lot, but in Muricaland it's way way too high)
